Plummer, John (11 MAR 1844 - 23 JAN 1924)

John Plumer, one of the oldest resident of this city (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.), died suddenly at his home in the third ward, Monday, Jan. 28, 1924. He had been in his usual health and was able to be about and attend to his usual work about the place. In the early morning hours his wife was aroused by his apparent distress and in a few moments he had passed away as he slept.

John Plumer was born in Germany March 11, 1844, and would therefore have been 80 years old had he lived til the coming March. He came to America in 1868, and on Oct. 13, 1872, he was married at Black River Falls to Lizzie Webber, who survive him. For a time they lived on a farm near Hixton, Wis.. Later they moved to Clark County, Wis., settling on a farm in the town of York. About 10 years ago they moved to Neillsville, which has been their home since.

Mr. Plumer was a very industrious man, an excellent farmer, honest and upright in all his dealing, and respected by all who knew him. He had a cordial greeting for all his friends and was a most pleasant man to meet and visit with. Besides his wife he leaves three sons and three daughters to mourn his death: Mrs. Mary Lennie of Eau Claire; Louis Plumer, Reader, S. D.; Mrs. Emma Galster, Alma Center; Mrs. Mart La Stofka, Neillsville; Frank Plumer, Vesper, Wis.; and William Plumer, Supt. Of Clark County Poor Farm. The funeral will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Congregational Church, Rev. Longenecker officiating.
